In Nathaniel Kohn “exploring Hollywood”, there is intense discussion of what actually happens in Hollywood and there is combination of personal experiences encountered by the filmmaker. The nuances and the social discrepancies have been elucidated in detail in this analysis.
In these accounts, there is elucidation of the journeys undertaken by the writer or the film maker. They are both temporal and geographic accounts. They try to transcend people to their subjective perception. There are also some criticisms to this form of expression in the modern times. In the recent time, this mode of self-representation has been ubiquitous in the societies. It has become widely popular and has been used by film makers. The narrative themes are also welcome in the societies. The real issue in this form of expression is the matter of subjectivity. There is a lot of importance given to what the person feels and owing to this there is subjective interpretation of the situation. This causes disruption and influences how they are perceived in the societies. There is politicization that has been observed in some of the auto ethnography. This causes disruption of the facts in the society. Auto ethnographic are not authentic or can they be construed as reality of the situation but they are interesting pieces of subjective realism that has a different narrative theme.
It has been attributed that in cinemas it depends on the way it has been represented. Technology, screen play and the method of representation influences the overall perception of the auto ethnography. There are different views of film makers. In these ethnographic accounts, the film makers use different tools to express themselves. They need to factor in how the information is represented.
To summarize, auto ethnographic accounts are a mixture of the views of the self and actual events. They provide real life accounts of the issues encountered by the people. There are a number of ways in which they are expressed. Effective expression depends on the tools used and the technology used for creation of the work. This lag can cause discrepancies in understanding of the issues. Apart from this, the issue subjective realism should be tackled carefully. It should not be only to salvage the issues felt by the filmmaker in their childhood. Auto ethnographic accounts are thus a form of expression that can be a powerful tool if they are handled carefully.
